$119 for a video game?! Good lord, some people must be swimming in money. It doesn't even sound all that great, to be honest. The Digital Deluxe version still sounds like the best one, but I prefer having a physical copy of my games.

Edit: They're still continuing this trend of releasing a "best of AC" album instead of an actual soundtrack? Everyone who bought a special edition of ACR last year already got one such album, why would they want more of the same?

NA gets the flag?Theres something cool that you guys get.

No digital extras on the CE? Might pass on the CE even after waiting so long for an announcement. I like the flag, but for $120, they usuall give some additional digital content like another SP mission and/or MP pack. Oh well.

I'm not sure about this either tbh. The flag and statue sound awesome but no dlc for the price of two games? If you pre-order from gamestop you should get the Mayan ruins DLC anyway I would imagine and also that sword. I was kind of hoping to get Washington's journal too.

According to the Game Stop posting just released, we of course get the pre-order mission that you get with any GS pre-order, but that's it on the digital front. No journal or anything. Not digging the buckle. Flag is cool but where would my wife let me put it in the house, the statue is cool but again, where to put it. From the sound of the news from UbiGabe at E3 it was going to be great. A tad disappointed that this is what all the wait was for.

The belt buckle looks kind of cheap. I thought it would be just the assassin logo like on Ezio's Brotherhood outfit, without this big empty frame around it. The statue looks pretty cool though.

For me it's more about the lack of any additional digital content outside of the SP mission you get from your selected retailer by simply pre-ordering the regular edition.

I already have the steelbook from the pre-order so that doesn't concern me. I would have liked more digital content, but I know that will come later as DLC as with the others. I would have traded the buckle for the journal though. That would have been a great read.

Doubtful. The release says this one is exclusive to NA and Latin America. This or the standard is our choice.

As I've said, I would have liked another added digital content with a SP and/or MP pack, but we know those will be released as paid DLC down the road. I would have really liked to replace the buckle with the Washington journal but my wife said she'd use the buckle and I'll hand the flag in my back patio as a convo piece. I just may get it in the end.

If I upgrade it will be the GS one. The flag is the big piece of interest for me. I can buy the two pieces of reading material seperate if I wanted, but the flag is going to be hard to get I think and pricy on eBay.

flag is very cool but is also huge!
belt buckle......ill probably never really wear it. prolly just sell it

the Ubi is a better deal sense you get two very limited edition books for less than 20 bucks each (each regularly around 50)
and you get a poster!

I totally AGREE! I love the flag, but I don't have ANY room for more statues. Considering the 3 editions EU got, I was really hoping for the same DLC, Multiplayer Characters, and George Washington book to be included, but since we only get 3 things including the game I fealt VERY UNHAPPY!

$120 is a huge price for something that only includes 3 things, since comparing to the EU choices, $120 over their will net you a WHOLE BUNCH MORE than in this USA edition.

I'm hoping another USA edition is announced that includes more digital content, George's book, because if EU gets 3 LE choices, than USA should get 3 LE choices as well. Please Ubisoft! DON'T LET USA CITIZENS DOWN!!

I didn't see his post. It could be getting confused with the digital deluxe edition that us detailed below the LE. The LE for NA does not list or show Washington's notebook anywhere.

BlankDistortion
07-02-2012, 08:13 PM
I am actually disappointed in Ubisoft for this, because even though it has some good stuff, the EU Freedom Edition has nearly all of it and more. They told us that they would make it great because of the setting, and given what is in the EU CE's, I was expecting much better. Really, given the price, they should have at least traded the buckle for Washington's notebook. Even then, there should have been a sort of bundle of the DLC, with the outfits, characters, and missions. Maybe not the Exclusive pre-order missions but I think you get what I mean. The flag and Statue are great, two things I want and have space for, but I was really hoping for the journal too. Then, Ubisoft more or less teases me with the Digital Delux Edition which includes most of the other things I wanted. I play on the PS3, not the PC, and even though I know there will be the 4 extra missions, I think we deserve the Bundle. They haven't given us a good CE once (when compared to the EU CE's), and even though this one tops the past NA editions, it still falls behind the EU. Now, I don't mean any of this in a selfish attitude, I am just saying that we should have at least been equalizied with the other region exclusives.

AWWWWWWEEEEEEESSSSSSOOOOOOOOOMMMMMMMMEEEEEEEEEE!!! !!!!!!!!!

I will definitely be getting this, for both the PS3 and 360, they will really look good with the Freedom Edition and the Join or Die Edition I am also getting. But what's with all the complaining? At least we're getting something and not being shafted like we were with Revelations (i liked the Brotherhood CE, but was a little disappointed). And if you're upset about not getting some extra DLC switch to the PS3 or quit your *****ing. ****, you complain that you won't be getting anything special and then when Ubi holds up their promise that we will be getting a CE you ***** and complain. If you want to ***** at someone ***** at the retailers who chose this version and not at Ubisoft, they can't force a retailer to take a certain type of product.

Look, this is how it works, Ubi goes to the distributors or retailers with different versions of the same product ranging from highest priced to lowest priced, and the distributor or retailer then decides how much they want to spend and how much they think we (customers) are willing to spend and how much profit they think they can make from us. I can almost guaranty that Gamestop and the other retailers were presented with a higher version of the collector's editions but decided together on this one version, that's why we have only one while Europe has two. So don't blame Ubisoft, they can only present the product to the distributor/retailer, the sellers are the ones that have final say on whether they want to sell it to us.

If that's the case then I would gladly buy a comparable CE from Ubisoft directly. However the UbiWorkshop Edition only includes the books and the game for $99.99. So Ubisoft is still letting the NA fans down by not releasing a CE edition for NA directly which can compare to the UK edition, which almost everyone expected to begin with.

massmurdera_666
07-02-2012, 09:08 PM
I also expected more, but Ubisoft has a marketing and placement department that obviously doesn't know how diehard the AC fans are. But you also got to look at it from their point of view, their trying to gain more fans and customers and having a super duper collector's edition wouldn't be cost effective if only the collector's of AC memorabilia will buy it. You could also blame the economy on why the CE is so small, no one wants to spend more money than they have to and gamble on the chance that a large majority will buy a super CE, it sucks but that's the world of business this day and age. I for one, am willing to pay anything to get my hands on something cool and collectable from the AC franchise.

Oh well at least it save me some money for future DLCs ;) The quality of the game is all that matter.

I love this edition.

I might sell the belt buckle on eBay though because I'm not a jeans and boots person.
And since it's a wearable item, it will have more value than George Washington's notebook.

Also, just imagine if they make a AC movie, the belt buckle would skyrocket in value.

First, thanks to Ubisoft for finally announcing a CE for North America.

I'm kind of amused at all the complaining about this edition. Seems like a lot of it is about the lack of DLC, which I'll agree is a valid complaint. It's not enough to make me displeased, but I can understand why others aren't happy.

Price wise, considering what's included, the price makes sense. Figure the game is $60, the statue would probably retail for at least $30, and the flag and the buckle would probably both retail for about $15. I gotta say, though, I think I'd rather have Washington's book than the buckle or the flag (or even both). I don't know that I'll ever wear the buckle, and the flag is kind of... hinky. Technically it's an alteration - and therefore, desecration - of an official US flag, which is a violation of the US Flag Code and therefore a violation of federal law. That law is never enforced, so it's more just guidelines, but it's still law. Of course, I've never really had an issue with people wearing bandanas and such that are based off of Old Glory, Plus, a flag like that, with the size and all, would look pretty sweet on my wall. I just hope it's made out of decent cloth.

I think that there might be one more edition for North America, because the Picture says Gamestop exclusive, and not everyone uses Gamestop. Also, most, if not, all of the other C.E.'s have A LOT more DLC, and that is kinda what I am looking for, the flag is freaking awesome, but I also want at least a Multiplayer character too... Happy, but dissapointed about this edition, and after I read the email from UbiGabe saying they were trying to make this freaking awesome for North Americans, I am more dissapointed than happy... :(

Yeah, the lost myan ruin mission is a pre-order bonus from gamestop, bestbuy get the ghost of war mission, wal-mart get the dangerous secret mission, amazon get the captain aquila outfit and boarding axe, and target get the colonial outfit and Scottish pistol .

The problem with me though is that I'm a PC player, I can't get the physical version because they don't have one for the PC.

I'm annoyed by that. First they don't give the NA more than 1 CE option (whether they play on consoles or PC), and they don't fulfill everyone's wants.

I just hope they sell the Connor statue separately.

Well you do get the notebook though, plus it only cost $65 so basically extra $15 for the notebook and all the dlcs which I think it's great deal. The limited edition is a bit much though the statue, flag, and belt buckle for extra $60. I would rather spent that money on future dlcs. They should have 3 separate editions one that include all the in-game contents,one that include the physical items, and one that include both in-game and physical items. That way people can choose what edition they want according what is more important to them.

Yea, getting pretty much all of the pre-order DLC and the digital version of George's notebook is pretty awesome, def. worth $15.

It's just, I would love a statue of Connor, seeing as he's my favorite Assassin so far just because of his arsenal. Dual pistols (a favorite of mine), a bow (another favorite), a tomahawk (I've gained a love for war axes ever since Skyrim), and the hidden blade (I love that thing). I also love his reasons for being an Assassin, and his more stealthy style is awesome too.

That's true. It seems you're going to get a better deal though, you're going to get the statue, if you buy it, and all the DLC that comes with the PC CE. Most of us are either going to buy LE or a regular copy.

I think they just might sell the statue separately if a lot of people is demanding if not I'm sure people will sell it on ebay or something. Like what I've said earlier they should have included more options Some people prefer physical items, some people prefer in-game content, and some people want both, so why not include of all those different editions for all platforms and regions to make everyone happy.

I kinda found this edition funny, and in a way it was a break of the usual video game routine, most of the time America gets the most epic editions, but for once...we here in the Middle East get the ability too get something worth the money. I think the statue will be sold alone later on, best bet is eBay.

Eh, Gamestop has gotten exclusive 'limited editions' before, such as the Revelations package that included Da Vinci's flyer last year, not to mention the Signature Edition only available through them for ACR and Ghost Recon Future Soldier. If they are holding back the "staggering" awesome CE for tomorrow, then better show off the worse version now to build hype.

Where's Washington's journal? I'd much rather have that than the flag. It looks like something you'd find at a garage sale. The belt buckle is nice, I guess, but I'd prefer the medallion from the Join or Die edition. The statue is about the only good thing on the list, but that doesn't make this worth $120. Why can't Ubisoft just offer us the same editions as Europe?

I much prefer the 360 controller and all multiplatform games on my 360. I have so few games on my PS3, the last game I bought was Battlefield 3 and I traded that in last month. Only have left is Uncharted 1 and 2, Bad Company 2, and the MGS HD Collection.

Gears and AC1 were my first.

I agreed with you that the menus and the online interaction of PS3 is not good at all, the Xbox dashboard and online stuff for the Xbox is much better (in my opinion) . With graphics I really don't see the different between the two ( maybe it just me though). In my opinion although I really enjoy Uncharted 1 and 2 ( thought 3 is not good at all, not much change, and very overrated) but it has no replay value whatsoever basically once I beat it I have no desire to do it again . I got the xbox 360 first and I got the PS3 as a birthday present. I know this sound weird but I have AC1 ( which I let my friend borrow and he lost it), AC2, and ACB. But I have ACR for the PS3 mainly because my xbox 360 basically have no memory space left and ACR on PS3 come with AC1. I mainly play online game with my xbox like COD, Gears, Mass Effect 3, etc... and those games require alot of memory space. So I try to get more games for PS3 to save spaces. Plus I'm God of war and Metal Gears fan so I had to have those games. I also like the xbox controller better. I have had my 360 for 5 years now and only 2 years for the ps3 so I'm a little biased toward the 360.

The PS3 is actually stronger than the Xbox, and Revelations look better on it, but most devs find it too complex too make games on it so they make X360 games, then port it over too the PS3. Aren't we going kinda off topic, here?

Sorry for the off topic here. Yes I used to have the 20gb hard drive, but then I bought the 60gb hard drive and transfer all of my stuff from the 20gb hard drive to the 60 one. Then I delete everything from the 20gb hard drive and sold it online. 60gb is still not enough for me haha :D and I don't want buy more memory space while I have the 250 gb PS3 sitting around so I had to make good use of it.
